Activities

Saturday is made of four program activity sessions — two in the morning and two in the afternoon. In the Program Activities section of your Registration form, rank your top six program choices (with #1 as your first choice) in EACH of the three camp activity categories:  crafts, skills, and outdoor/nature/sports. Don’t repeat activities, nor leave an activity field blank, please.

TROOP TIME: This is one of your four programs throughout the day. This gives the troop an extra hour to work on outdoor cooking entries, lip sync performance, medallion hunt, troop badge work, or to simply hang out.  Adults are still responsible for their Scouts during this time.
